"Observation" is a excitable word. Most staff members cannot wait to discuss the outcome of their observation with administration, because it is a teaching moment from her/him.
 
My opinion: Let your conscience be your guide.
Educators know if they are doing right by their students or if they are trying to take short cuts. Do the best you can as often as you can and it won't matter who's watching.

I especially like the part where Mark said to keep it simple. Many of us are caught up in wanting to do something impressive, which is not the way we regularly teach.
 
Mark gave great advice about preparing for an observation. I really liked his
EASIER plan for a successful observation.
